Paeonia lactiflora 'Duchesse de Nemours'
Peony Duchesse de Nemours
AGM Award Of Garden Merit
Large Double Ivory White Flowers
Container Grown, Pot Size 5 Litre
Peony Duchesse de Nemours is a classic old peony variety which is much treasured for its highly scented, large, double ivory-white flowers. This peony has been awarded an AGM (award of garden merit) by the RHS, which is given when a plant has shown in trials to have outstanding qualities.
Plant your peony in a well drained, moisture retentive soil in full sun/light shade. Our Peonies are container grown therefore they can be planted all year round, providing the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If your soil is fertile there is no need to add fertiliser, but if the soil is very light and nutrient deficient, its a good idea to add some well balanced fertiliser to the planting hole. Plant the peony at the same level as it is in its pot, do not plant too deeply. Cut down fully faded foliage in Autumn. In Spring, its beneficial to apply some well balanced fertiliser around the base of the plant.
Herbaceous peony. The flowering time for Duchesse de Nemours is July/July.
The height of this peony is 1M.
